Hello, I am Kim Barnett, the proud owner of Primrose School of Lone Tree.
I was first introduced to Primrose in 2009, and immediately fell in love with the way that Primrose brings the best in educational child care to families and children; through a curriculum and focus on character development and partnerships formed with parents. I understand the importance of working with the staff and the families to constantly strive to create the best environment for children. Whether its social emotional development, curriculum, nutrition or a safe environment, every aspect needs to be at its absolute best in order to help children develop and grow.
Prior to becoming a franchise owner, I was a Primrose teacher. I joined Primrose School of East Cobb at Sprayberry in 2009 as a Kindergarten teacher, before becoming the school’s executive director. Having earned a bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education from Georgia Southern University, I have taught all ages from infant to adult and have over thirty years of experience in a career crossing education and business operations. I am committed to helping teachers of young children provide a positive, nurturing environment where children can develop a natural love of learning.
“Who children become is as important as what they know” is a belief that is at the core of our Balanced Learning® approach. Our exclusive early learning approach balances purposeful play with nurturing guidance from teachers to encourage curiosity, creativity, confidence, and compassion. We deliver more than a curriculum; it’s a life-changing early learning experience for children and their families.
I am excited to meet you and your family!
